Is the sqrt2 over 8 rational or irrational? I believe it is irrational.

Jeremiah Oglethorpe
I also need to know why.

Scott
your belief is correct
the reason is because √2 is irrational
... all noninteger roots of integers are irrational 
Jeremiah Oglethorpe
I meant that it is the sqrt2 of 2 of 8 it is only the 2 that is sqrt2. This being said is what you say still true?

Scott
if this is what you mean ... (√2) / 8
then you're good
